What is an Anal Orgasm?

Whether using their own finger, a sex toy, or a penis, many cis and trans people report finding anal play pleasurable. In fact, stimulating the anus can be more intense than the G-spot for some.

Lube is key, however. The anus does not self-lubricate the way a vagina does, so it’s important to apply lots of lube before penetrating.

What is an anal orgasm?

Anal orgasms are earth-shattering pleasure sensations that occur when you stimulate the anus area, which contains a dense network of sensory nerves that participate with the genitals in sexual arousal and orgasm. While many women are reluctant to try anal play, the pleasure can be intense and profound, especially for those who are accustomed to internal clitoral stimulation. For first-time anal players, the key is to start out slow and with external clitoral stimulation, such as a sex toy or your own fingers, until you’re ready to delve into penetration.

When you do, be sure to use plenty of lube, such as silicone lubricant, to reduce friction and discomfort, and always begin with one knuckle inside (or even less) for safe, smooth penetration. Ideally, you’ll want to blend your anal and external clitoral play for mind-blowing blended orgasms.

The sensitivity of the anal area makes it more susceptible to orgasms from penetrating the rim and exploring the inner lining, which is often called the “A-spot.” Also known as the female degenerated prostate because it can be stimulated the same way as the male G-spot, it’s a sensitive patch of tissue that can trigger clitoral orgasms for AFAB people when properly stimulated.

The anal can be a highly pleasurable sensation to explore, but it takes time and practice to find what feels good. Almost half of the women who experienced anal orgasms in our survey reported that their partner helped them discover anal pleasure by showing them how and encouraging them to explore. It also helps to have a supportive and comfortable relationship, clear communication about boundaries and safe sex precautions, and of course, a judgment-free space for exploration.

How to have an anal orgasm

Just like any other erogenous zone, there are different ways to reach an orgasm. It might take some experimenting to find the pleasure spots that work for you and your partner. You can use a sex toy, a penis, or your own fingers to explore anal play. Make sure to clean your anus and use plenty of lube before you start playing, and always be respectful of your partner’s anal area.

Stimulating the sensitive nerves in the anus can trigger orgasms, but many people experience pleasure from other areas too. For example, the G-spot can feel a rush of orgasms for some women and men, especially if it’s stimulated through anal penetration. And the penis can also feel a great buzz of orgasms for some people, especially if it’s stimulated with the finger or a sex toy.

While some people can orgasm from anal penetration alone, it’s pretty rare. It’s usually best to combine anal stimulation with other forms of stimulation, such as clitoral and vaginal stimulation. This is called a blended orgasm, and it’s where you get orgasms from stimulation of multiple erogenous zones.

Another way to increase your chances of an anal orgasm is to practice relaxation. Tightening your sphincters will keep penetration from feeling good, so it’s important to train yourself to relax. This can help you go deeper and feel even more pleasure during anal sex.

How to avoid an anal orgasm

While anal orgasms have been gaining some traction lately, it’s important to remember that not everyone is into this sort of pleasure. “People with different anatomies might not feel the same way about it, and some of us don’t orgasm from the anus,” says psychologist Barbara Santini. “Others do, and that’s okay.”

Stimulating the anus can lead to orgasms of all kinds. You can reach out with your fingers, use sex toys or a penis to probe the area, or get a little more adventurous and insert something larger into the anal opening. The key is to always use lube, and it’s also a good idea to start small before moving on to bigger things.

Anal masturbation can be very pleasurable and it’s a great way to practice and discover what turns you on. It’s also a good way to warm up before you have partnered anal play and penetration, says Gonzalez. “Once you’re comfortable with hands and fingers, try using a butt plug or anal dildo to explore the sensations of the anal opening,” she recommends.

If you’re ready to have partnered anal orgasm, it’s important to be in the right mindset and relax. “The more tense you are, the harder it will be to reach orgasm,” says pleasure coach Tyomi Morgan. Getting in the zone involves letting go of the fear around your anus, and she suggests trying to visualize the pleasure you’ll have when it opens up during anal stimulation.

What to do if you have an anal orgasm

Incorporating anal play into your sexual routine is a great way to build up excitement. But before bringing your partner into the mix, it’s important to practice alone and explore what kind of stimulation turns you on, especially when it comes to anal penetration. Try out toys like a butt plug or finger and make sure to always use anal-safe lubrication, recommends Sinclair.

If you’re not used to anal play, a first-time experience can feel awkward or uncomfortable. But if you take your time and focus on the pleasure, anal orgasms aren’t too far off. Anal orgasms are a climax from stimulation of the nerves around your anus, which is packed full of high-density nerve spots. The pudendal nerve also carries sensations to the vagina, labia, and clitoris. And, if you have a penis, it can stimulate your prostate to achieve a unique type of orgasm.

Orgasms are involuntary, rhythmic muscle contractions that happen when you touch or suck an erogenous zone. And although anal orgasms might be a little taboo, the truth is that anyone can have them if they are willing to try. For women, the key is to relax their sphincter muscles by masturbating or trying foreplay techniques with their partners and experimenting with different anal stimuli to find out what turns them on.
